The CSW’s mission is to help UUs put our Principles and Purposes into action. The CSW assists the UUA and its member congregations by facilitating the articulation of suggested Congregational Study/Action Issues (CSAIs) and educating UUs in potential social change inherent in CSAIs. After four years of studying the CSAIs, the CSW prepares and presents to the Assembly draft Statements of Conscience.
The GAPC facilitates the smooth running of GA by setting the daily schedule, selecting overall programming, and developing policies for the gathering. They hold primary responsibility for Opening and Closing Worship, music, ambiance, chaplaincy, evening entertainment, logistics for witness events, inclusion efforts, aiding in right relationships, and other services. In addition to recommending future sites for GA to the UUA Board of Trustees, the GAPC establishes and manages the budget of the event – attempting to balance the competing needs for financial stewardship, accessibility, attention to children and youth, as well as the support of currently and historically marginalized individuals within our community.
This year’s GA collections benefit the Living Tradition Fund, the Katie Tyson Fund for Youth and Young Adult Ministries, Side with Love, and this year’s local beneficiary of the Sunday worship collection, East County Rising Community Projects (ECRCP). ECRCP builds grassroots leadership within East Multnomah County to create an equitable, inclusive, and livable community centered on the needs of the most underrepresented and marginalized residents.
During each collection participants will have an opportunity to donate online, via text-to-give, or through the GA mobile app using a credit card, PayPal, or Apple Pay—these are the preferred, as well as the fastest, safest ways to donate. For those who prefer to donate by check, or via a donor advised fund or IRA qualified charitable distribution, registrants will receive a mailer a few days prior to GA with instructions on how to do this. In-person attendees will still be able to place cash or checks into the collection basket.
Visit https://bit.ly/uua-gacollections to learn more about the collections as well as the Express Donate option—make one gift that is evenly divided between all four of this year’s beneficiaries.
